On article Grand Canyon time lapse records rare cloud inversion (125 comments in total)
In reply to:

LensBeginner: How do you do star trails like those in a time lapse?
I mean, judging by their length those are from exposures many minutes long, yet they move by a small amount and overlap with each passing frame.

I gather it's a PP thing?

I thought this out, and figured it must be some sort of "staggered" stacking...

For instance, in a series of pictures [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6], the first frame is the stack 1-4, the second 2-5, the third 3-6 etc. it's the only sensible explanation.

I feel that the editors could have added some interesting bits of information like this one, instead of just pitching the thing like eBay junk (Rare! Pristine! Mint! Mint-y!)

fitzgaf: A Merry Christmas to you all
(and thank you so much for saying Merry Christmas rather than Happy Holidays!)

That's just because I'll be working non-stop...

In the Raw: If there is one thing to learn from the rate of change in this world of rapid technological advance it is this. If you nail yourself to the mast of any one camera today, tomorrow you will go down with the ship.

Best to be on your own vessel, however old, take photos of the latest Titanic marvel as it sinks and post them here. :-)

I'm using 5-6 y.o. cameras so I definitely know that...

Still, at least 50% of my system is brand-specific (the other half are adaptable MF lenses, manual flashes and accessories), and it couldn't be any other way.

That's a catchy phrase for sure, but how are you going to put that in practice?

Only buy old manual focus lenses and adapt them on a different body if the company producing the one you are using goes bankrupt?

Or do you intend to design, manufacture and test your own camera? :-/

Windeguy: Pentax?

Pentax hasn't released anything worth mentioning camera-side this year.

KP is not what I'd call a best enthusiast-ILC.

I use Pentax almost exclusively BTW.

Prairie Pal: I would be more interested in this story had the equipment been Nikon mirrorless DSLR's.

...so Mirrorless DSL non-R?

In reply to:

Mike CH: The point is probably not really about dropping bombs on places or surveillance or some such but rather something else:

Drone users have been making too much of a nuisance of themselves and now the backlash is coming.

I thought the people at Columbine High and countless other places would have made enough of a nuisance of themselves to make someone act, even if only out of spite...

Oh, well... drones are dangerous, after all.

Akgbkd: Pixel 2... Best camera for parents

@anticipation

That is based on the assumption that everyone can sit in the front row... 5-10m can make a big difference for smartphones, since they have a fixed, wide-ish angle focal length.

In reply to:

O_O: I guess that F22 allows more background details. With a slower shutter speed, the motion blur effect is much stronger.

An F-22 would have been faster, I think... so, yeah, more blur! :P

So, an interesting tech preview, at best.

Thanks for the interesting trip!

Scottelly: Does anyone else see that the Pentax K1 is conspicuously missing from this list? It has advantages over the Nikon D750, and costs the same, right? How did the D750 make this list, but the Pentax K1 didn't?

...if you say so...

snapa: I wish DPR would stop trying to tell us what cameras/lenses to buy and spend more time and energy posting full reviews of them. That way, we can all decide for ourselves what is best for our own personal needs.
I'm just getting a bit tired of having someone else tell me what they think "I" should buy. If you look at the first page on DPR, there is at least 10 articles trying (hinting) to buy something, and only 1 review, of a PHONE! :-/

@ZeBebito They have to make everyone happy... they are decent folks and near Christmas we all are... uhm... good-er? :-P

K-1 has AF too (I got the joke...), it's just that they couldn't figure out how to use it XD

Same goes for pixel-sihft... it took 'em a good year to learn, just in time for the Sony version of it.
I would have liked to see the results produced by a Sony shooting foliage and a waterfall, with their uhm... curious implementation, that requires 30" between shots in PS mode... sadly they chose a static scene this time around.
